Epiphone Wilshire


Recommended Posts

Hello, I have an Epiphone Wilshire that I bought from a guy over 20 years ago and I'm thinking about selling because I'm really an acoustic guy. I'm trying to find out some information about it, particularly what year it is. I've attached a photo with the serial number on it. I put a new bridge on it a few years ago and the grover tuners came with it but the previous owner must have done that. Any information about this guitar would be appreciated. Thanks
